Posted by Dr. Michael White, Updated on November 9th, 2021

chiseled jaw women turn on 300x200Washboard abs and a chiseled jaw are a draw, but a recent study suggests it may be a man's healthy immune system that turns women on.

The critical factor may be testosterone, the male hormone that has been associated with a man's healthy, good looks. According to a study published in the journal … Read more »

man strength through testosterone 300x190Testosterone makes us overvalue our own opinions at the expense of cooperation, research from the Wellcome Trust Centre for Neuroimaging at UCL (University College London) has found. The findings may have implications for how group decisions are affected by dominant individuals. It also suggests that testosterone might make people more determined and set in their ways when they make decisions about the future. Could it also give such determined people the image in others as pigheaded, monomaniacal, knows-what-they-want or even as a born leader. Thus this spectrum of behaviors can be interpreted in different ways by different people. But one … Read more »
